Mein Auto: e39 540i-e24 635-e70 4.8i
M sport pack was only offered in 2003. My 98 has some M parts like yours, it even has M sport suspension but it isn't an M sport 540! Anyway just wanted to tell you that if you take good care of your e39 it will run forever. The only thing that all here can admit to be a real problem is the auto trans. which you don't have!! My 540 has 240k miles and it still looks like a 3 years old car! Of course there is some common problem like the cooling system but if you keep checking it regularly it wont be a problem. When I bought my 540 the fan clutch was broken and I was stuck for 30 min in a tunnel in mid summer at 40-45 degrees and it didn't overheat..I say keep it
